Just an idea. . . I am a manager/social coordinator for a senior subsidized housing project. Generally when we have parties the big question is which table to sit at so we can go to the buffet line first. So I try to come up with creative ways to call different tables up to the line first to be fair. Some ideas I've used in the past are. . . I would ask for a show of hands from the entire room as to who has a birthday in the room that coincides with the month the party is held in. If my event is in May then which ever table had the most May birthday's would go to the buffet table first. Then I would pick another month and let those folks go next etc. etc. A second idea is having your centerpieces of your table with a single item of individuality(so if you are doing a Valentines day party and you have red roses in your centerpieces maybe add one pink tulip to one tables centerpiece, add a purple carnation to another tables centerpiece). Then put all the colors/individual items named on a piece of paper in a hat and have someone pull the winner. This is very unbiased and fair. Don't forget... give away the center pieces as prizes at the end of your event!
